The Gulf Coastal Plains Mitigation Bank currently has non-forested wetland (palustrine emergent and palustrine scrub-shrub) and tidal wetland (estuarine emergent) credits available to offset impacts from projects around Galveston Bay and servicing parts of Harris, Galveston, Brazoria, Liberty, Chambers, and Jefferson Counties. The bank is ideally situated to provide compensatory mitigation east of Houston around Baytown and Mont Belvieu and south from Pearland to Galveston.
This mitigation bank is a 630-acre tract on the eastern side of Galveston Bay that abuts the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. The Earth Partners will establish, restore, and enhance 230 acres of freshwater marsh and open water habitat, 80 acres of coastal prairie, 220 acres of tidal marsh, 50 acres of tidal streams and mud flats, and 50 acres of shrub wetlands and upland buffer. The Gulf Coastal Plains site can also support wetland permittee-responsible mitigation (PRM) projects.Download service area map & contact information
